Medicine, Dentistry, Optometry, Veterinary Medicine
Are you interested in a field related to health, such as dentistry, medicine, or veterinary medicine? The health professions pre-professional program at UNH will recommend a course of studies that provides you with a comprehensive curriculum and the educational background needed to meet the entrance requirements of professional schools, including schools of medicine, veterinary medicine, dentistry, and optometry.
If you’d like to attend medical or dental school, it’s important to understand that the process begins years prior to entrance. Competition is high, and many factors are considered in the admissions process, including academic achievement, course of studies, standardized tests, extracurricular and volunteer activities, and recommendations from professors. Also, medical schools look for students who have a strong understanding of, and commitment to, the medical profession.
Our pre-professional program will help you add these dimensions to your academic profile. In addition to the regular coursework, the program also offers many health-related and research-based opportunities to qualified students. This type of experience makes you a stronger, more attractive candidate for professional and graduate schools.
Students from many different majors gain admission to graduate study in the medical and health professions. However, you must successfully complete a minimum number of specific undergraduate courses in English, chemistry, biology, and physics. You’ll learn about these requirements when you work with your pre-professional advisor, making your academic path at UNH much clearer.
With our advisors, outcome is everything — and that means your successful admission to post-graduate study and a brilliant career after that.
